Furniture of the Future

Most of us have spent an hour or more putting together a piece of flat-pack furniture. Fun, huh?  Mr. Shops and I will never forget the two days we spent assembling an apartment full of IKEA for Shops Jr. when he moved to Chicago for college. Imagine using no tools, screws or glue. Less material, less labor, it’s true. In a way, that was furniture of the future.

It’s still conceptual. But there is a market for sturdy furniture that’s easy to assemble and disassemble for moving or storing. It would be perfect for funky teenager spaces at home and college dorms, as well as family rooms and outdoor spaces.

    I’m normally not a fan of furniture you have to assemble but the pieces above are really neat :)
